My Backyard Garden Book Cover

Hardback | Paperback | eBook

“The backyard was a place of refuge in my mother’s eyes.”

Debra Hester, broadcasting from Force 3 FM Radio studios

A smile warms the heart and offers #empathyforgrief and with COVID the loss of a loved one or a lifestyle. Show yourself and others more empathy than sympathy.

 

 A place whose meaning speaks beyond the book, My Backyard Garden and beyond the death of our loved ones to our grief and loss journey.  With COVID – 19 we grieve the loss of loved ones and lifestyles.

That’s why I invite you to Mother’s Backyard Buzz and #empathyforgrief – Break the Silent Struggle podcasts.

 My hopes and prayers are that the blog, Mother’s Backyard Buzz will grow into a movement and speak to the grief and loss journey of mothers, parents, caregivers, children and ultimately to families, communities, organizations, professionals, corporations and governments.

During my mothers last days, she shared the God inspired prophesy and wisdom that:

“The backyard is where we get our love and nourishment, a safe place, a place that parents and families should create for our children; so our children won’t look out, to the front yard, to the world, for the direction they should get from home.”

 Support #empathyforgrief on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter.

 Enjoy my podcasts here and you can listen to them through your favorite podcast provider.
